Beyond Grateful

I don’t even know where to begin! Lisa came into my life when I needed her the most. I have been binge listening to her past podcasts, which just leave me craving more. It’s like Lisa took a walk in my brain and knows just what I need to hear. I recently purchased her “Daily Mindful Lettering” book and started using it today. I am so grateful Lisa embraced this opportunity to share her personal journey with anxiety and depression with us. Words really can’t express how thankful I am. <3

What a gift!

My daughter surprised me with the “Daily Mindful Lettering” bundle and my cup is full! I am on Day 5 and I LOVE how easy it has been to incorporate 5 (or 90) minutes of creating into my day. I love to create while listening to your podcasts. Your wisdom provides great value to all aspects of life. Each day I am more and more mindful of submitting to the process rather than creating for perfection. Thank you, Lisa. I look forward to seeing where this journey takes me.

Podcast Walking

I look forward to putting in my headphones and taking a 30 minute or so, walk, while listening to these podcasts. They have given me so much peace and helped me with becoming more mindful of my thoughts, and practicing my lettering for fun, also to plant positive, encouraging intentions for my day. I have been truly blessed by each one I’ve heard so far. My husband actually joined me with a headphone in his ear the other day and really like the message. He said “I totally get why you enjoy this so much” all this to say that the “Committed to Create” podcast has really brought a bright light into my days and I am slowly changing the way I see things.
Thank you Lisa 🌺
